Can't open links from Outlook or Word

I run Windows XP Professional and Outlook 2003 (11.8118.8132) SP2.

I have a new nuisance which has appeared out of the blue.  If I receive an email with a link to a website in the text and click on the link I get a message:

Microsoft Office Outlook
X This operation has bee canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer.  Please contact your system administrator.

I log on as system administrator (no one else uses this computer.  It only began to do this a coupe of weeks ago.   Never had this problem before.  I have searched the Windows Security settings and the Norton Internet Security settings to see if some new (bloody) automated update has changed something but I can't find anything which looks relevant.  

Also, if I paste a valid link into a Word documents and then click the link I first get a message in the bottom left corner of Word saying "Word is preparing to open this document"  Note pad opens, then I get a message:


! Cannot fing the C:\Documents and Settings\administrator\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\8LDDSLIS\register[1].htm file.

Do you want to create a new file?

Very weird.  This never happened before either.  Any suggestions?
